General Physical Science Series 1301 (Phys & Chem Degree)
These positions involve professional work in the physical sciences. This series includes work in a combination of physical science fields, with no one predominant over another.
Chemistry Series 1320 (Chemistry Degree)
These positions involve work that requires full professional education and training in the field of chemistry. They apply the composition, structure, properties and change of matter to address DoD challenges/issues. Research may include topics such as the properties of individual atoms, how atoms form chemical bonds to create chemical compounds, the interactions of substances through intermolecular forces that give matter its general properties, and the interactions between substances through chemical reactions to form different substances. This series can potentially include all specialties in chemistry ( e.g. Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry etc..).
Meteorology Series 1340 (Physics, Chemistry & Meteorological degree)
These positions involve professional work in meteorology, the science concerned with the earth's atmospheric envelope and its processes. The work includes basic and applied research into the conditions and phenomena of the atmosphere; the collection, analysis, evaluation, and interpretation of meteorological data to predict weather and determine climatological conditions for specific geographical areas; the development of new or the improvement of existing meteorological theory; and the development or improvement of meteorological methods, techniques, and instruments.
